    Review quote
    Be clear about this: Instead of Education, although less widely known than his more famous titles, is John Holt at the top of his game. If you are one of the millions of walking wounded still staggering from your own encounter with forced institutional schooling, and trying to spare your own kids from its damage, this book will be your guide and a good friend. --John Taylor Gatto, former New York State Teacher of the Year, author of Dumbing Us Down and The Underground History of American Education
